Since 1958, the Irish Mining and Quarrying Society (IMQS) has provided a focal point for those working in the extractive industry in Ireland.

We would like to continue this support by offering financial assistance to individuals studying to gain a qualification, or a working individual improving their knowledge in a subject, related to the Mining, Quarrying or Extractives Industries.
